Why Mitt Romney Never Should Be President: Exhibit A. Sore Loser.

Chris Christie is trying to manage one crisis after another. First Hurricane Sandy, now Hostess going bankrupt. This man has more to deal with than a whiny self-important narcissist.

Anything but the truth. Truth is Mitt Romney showed neither class or substance. He probably still doesn't know who he is. But I do. Empty suit and clueless pandering imbecile to the monied. At least he got his ride home paid for, unlike his "close family of supporters." A professional hack and bad joke. Now Christie should tell these hyenas to shove off, and announce he's an Independent. That would shake them. Tell me again how the GOP serves it's citizens.

It's not our fault! - This message brought to you by the Party of Personal Responsibility™.

“Christie,” said a Romney adviser, “allowed Obama to be president, not a politician.”

Um, no. Being president allowed Obama to be president. The bully pulpit is one of the perks of the job.

With the hurricane dominating headlines, Obama used the bully pulpit of the White House briefing room to show he was on top of the storm response effort. [...]

[B]ehind the scenes, the intensity of the reaction from those in Mr. Christie’s party caught him by surprise, interviews show, requiring a rising Republican star to try to contain a tempest that left him feeling deeply misunderstood and wounded.

...

[I]n the days after the storm, Mr. Christie and his advisers were startled to hear from out-of-state donors to Mr. Romney, who had little interest in the hurricane and viewed him solely as a campaign surrogate, demanding to know why he had stood so close to the president on a tarmac. One of them questioned why he had boarded Mr. Obama’s helicopter, according to people briefed on the conversations.

It did not help that Mr. Romney had not called Mr. Christie during those first few days, people close to the governor say.

The tensions followed Mr. Christie to the annual meeting of the Republican Governors Association in Las Vegas last week. At a gathering where he had expected to be celebrated, Mr. Christie was repeatedly reminded of how deeply he had offended fellow Republicans.

“I will not apologize for doing my job,” he emphatically told one of them in a hotel hallway at the ornate Wynn Resort.

His willingness to work closely with the president has cast a shadow over Mr. Christie’s prospects as a national candidate, prompting a number of Republicans to wonder aloud whether he is a reliable party leader.

“It hurt him a lot,” said Douglas E. Gross, a longtime Republican operative in Iowa who has overseen several presidential campaigns in the state. “The presumption is that Republicans can’t count on him.”

Republican voters in Iowa, the first state to select presidential candidates, “don’t forget things like this,” Mr. Gross said.

I'd love to see New Jersey move their primary to first in the nation just to troll them.

It's testament to Christie's own denial of the real world that he was surprised by such a reaction.
